September Disney World crowds

In September Disney World crowds get a treat. The weather is perfect, the crowds are light, and the food and wine are fantastic.


The Princess and her Prince Charming had a September honeymoon trip to Walt Disney World. They found everything to be just about Perfect.

Dad’s Crowd Calendar Disclaimer

This calendar is based on historical facts, as I know them today. The Walt Disney World Resort is an ever-changing environment and you might find things significantly different from below.

(There, Mr. Dad’s lawyer, are you happy?)

September Events

September is normally one of the lowest crowd months at Walt Disney World. So Disney spices up the months with several special events. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party runs all month in September on selected nights in the Magic Kingdom. The EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival is underway, having started at the end of August.

The complete crowd picture

Here is an overall view of what the crowds at Disney World will be like during the month of September. This calendar is based on Dad’s knowledge and whatever information he can find about crowd patterns during the month. For a complete, park by park day by day, look at what the crowds are in each park, check out


The guys and gals at literally wrote the book on Disney World crowds (The Unofficial Guide Walt Disney World). They have years of historical crowd levels so you can see what the crowds have been like through the years. They have projected crowd levels in each park for every day of the year. Each day there is a recommendation for the best parks to visit and those to avoid. They even have an smart phone app that shows how long the lines are at every ride in real time.


I use for my trips and highly recommend it. Trust me.
